Caribbean Society of Nuclear Imaging

Martinique

Research centers or research group

CSNI

Medical cooperation to improve the treatment of patients suffering from cardiovascular and cancerous diseases.

This project is the result of a strong commitment from the Collectivité territoriale de Martinique and its international partners, including the Caribbean partners, namely: Antigua, Austria, Barbados, Bahamas, Cuba, Curaçao, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Saint Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago.

On September 3rd, 2020, they all approved the creation of the first learned society in the field of nuclear medicine in the Greater Caribbean: the Caribbean Society of Nuclear Imaging (CSNI).

The purpose of this association is to develop expertise on all subjects concerning nuclear imaging and to ensure its dissemination.

The objectives of the CSNI are to:

• Contribute to the development of all activities in the field of clinical excellence;
• Encourage clinical research;
• Foster dialogues between practitioners to diagnose and treat patients;
• Create a Caribbean instance of world-class reference in nuclear imaging,

The missions are to:

• Establish a network between nuclear imaging professionals and clinicians in the Caribbean to facilitate dialogue and experience sharing.
• Promote research in nuclear imaging, including multi-center studies;
• Facilitate the dissemination of scientific work, in particular through its official organ, the Caribbean Nuclear Imaging Journal;
• Inform public institutions and the general public of the advances and problems related to the pathologies that represent a public health problem in the Caribbean.
• Promote the teaching of nuclear medicine and radio pharmacy for physicians, radio pharmacists and technicians especially in the Caribbean countries.
• Participate in the opening of several nuclear medicine centers in the Caribbean by providing training for local teams in the form of sponsorship or partnerships for :
o Supporting the establishment and constitution of nuclear imaging services,
o Making recommendation and facilitating training programs for nuclear imaging staff and students,
o Improving the management of patients requiring access to nuclear imaging technologies and internal radiotherapy.
• Collaborate with associations, learned societies, private sector companies and organizations or institutions whose activities and missions are related to nuclear imaging as a whole in the Caribbean or in any other country of the world.
• Establish recommendations and to share good practices of nuclear imaging adapted to the insular contexts and for frequent pathologies in the region. They will be published by the association for the targeted public.

The missions of the CSNI will be carried out through the organization of scientific congresses, possibly in partnership with other learned societies, scientific communications, conferences, publications, awards and prizes, as well as through participation in any event concerning nuclear medicine in the Caribbean.

The CSNI will hold the First International Congress of Nuclear Imaging, scheduled to take place in June 2022 in Martinique.
It will be organised in tandem with the official inauguration of the Caribbean Institute of Nuclear Imaging ( CINI), a high-tech medical institute equipped with a PET scan and an Cyclotron of 18 MeV, which is eagerly awaited in the territory.
